About this resource: 
Nottingham City Safeguarding Adults Board (NCSAB) has produced this briefing on 'cuckooing' for staff to consider its relevance in relation to their team practice. ‘Cuckooing’ is a crime that often, but not always, accompanies ‘County Lines’ offending and occurs when drug dealers take over the home of a vulnerable person to use for drug dealing and other criminal activity. The crime of ‘cuckooing’ vulnerable people is named after the cuckoo’s practice of taking over other birds' nests for its young.
